GARDSGHASTR a new black metal entity created by the forces comprised of prolific members culled from elite black metal artists Bekëth Nexëhmü and Chaos Moon unleash their debut album “Slit Throat Requiem” (out on April 12 on CD/2LP/Digital), an epic bewitching overwhelming symphonic black metal maelstrom that harkens back to the glory of the unparalleled Norwegian black metal scene of the ‘90s.
Manifesting in a grandiloquent yet strident and powerful sound with a production that mirrors and ensnares the textures that were once produced from the confines of Greighallen Studios back in the ancient times, “Slit Throat Requiem” is a relentless black metal bombardment that flourishes through an overbearing wall-of-sound awash on dark ominous unmerciful atmosphere. Heavily orchestral on all fronts, from the ambient sound-generating guitar assault, the pounding battery, glorious sounding keyboards, and the piercing vocal incantations spewed forth, “Slit Throat Requiem” emerges as a black metal attestation to the genre’s true spirit and manifesting flame. A testimony compulsory in today’s black metal landscape.
